AYSI070 and PPA 240 Baby Shower Cards


Happy Saturday, peeps!  Thanks for the well-wishes,  I felt better enough to do some stamping for my niece’s baby shower we’re attending today!  Her invites were gray and yellow, and she’s having a boy, so I chose those colors plus a wee bit of blue for my card:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Something to Say Every Little Bit Baby Shower Stampin Up

I am usually stamp things in “threes”, but the As You See It sketch this week had four panels:


I stamped the little critters from Every Little Bit (retired SU) in Stazon black and colored them in with reinkers and an aquapainter.  I punched them out with a 1” square punch, then mounted them on So Saffron squares that were diecut with a Nestability die.  My top panel is from the Moonlight DSP stack.  I added some washi tape, an embossed button and some twine in Soft Sky:


I also embossed the lower portion with the cross stitch embossing folder from the retired Needlepoint set, and I couldn’t resist adding another button on the inside, along with the sentiments from Something to Say, stamped in Smoky Slate:


Since my sister is here to attend the shower as well, I stamped another card for her, a little different feel to this one; it uses the Pals Paper Arts sketch from this week:

and here’s the sketch:


This uses the SAB DSP Best Year Ever; retired sets Nursery Necessities and Itty Bitty Bitties and Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Ink colors used were Hello Honey, Calypso Coral and Soft Suede.  Thanks for visiting today!

Cassidy got some little Sofia post-it notes, so decided she was going use them to make “invitations” to a party!  Here is she, writing her guests’ names:


And consulting Grampy on how to spell his name!!!  I guess he’s a guest too!
